Broken Head Aboriginal Tour

YOUR EXPERIENCE PROVIDER

Explore Byron Bay

Join us on a special two hour Aboriginal tour at Broken Head on the North Coast of New South Wales, guided by Delta Kay, an Arakwal Bundjalung woman who is passionate about sharing Aboriginal culture. Delta is well known and respected as an Arakwal elder in the Byron Shire. Her ancestors have lived in the area surrounding Byron Bay for thousands of years and Arakwal customs, knowledge, ceremonies and stories have been passed down to her for safe keeping.

Insights into your experience

During our tours, Delta Kay will share significant places and you will hear local history and traditional stories. There are opportunities to learn Bundjalung language and about bush food, natural medicine, tools, weapons and artifacts.

Guests can expect to hear about Aboriginal existence before colonisation, including how Arakwal Bundjalung people cared for and preserved the land. Delta also explains the devastating impact of settlement and displacement on Aboriginal people. She teaches Bundjalung language and provides information about bush food, natural medicine, tools, weapons and artefacts.

During the tour guests often see an abundance of wildlife, such as dolphins, wallabies and fairy wrens to name a few. From coastal rainforest to crashing waves and rocky cliffs, the views on this tour are truly special.
